The NBA Playoffs are off to a solid start. There’s lots of energy in these first round games and matchups. And I love the adjusted tv format that ensures we’ll have three games to watch each night this week.
The Mavs are in a bad spot, down 0-1 to the Jazz with Game Two tonight in Dallas. No Doncic.
I loved this Chris Paul quote after he put on a show in Game One against the Pelicans. “Just because I don’t shoot a lot doesn’t mean I can’t shoot.” The Pels now probably agree. They might want to, you know, assign a defender to CP3.
All five Celtics touched the ball on that final possession that led to Jayson Tatum’s buzzer-beating layup to beat the Nets. And that was a wonderful assist from Marcus Smart.
Love me some Al Horford. 20 and 15 in a playoff game at age 35? Take THAT, youngsters!
That was some very sudden sudden death at the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head. Jordan Spieth and Patrick Cantlay each put their tee shot in the sand on the first extra hole. (That had to be particularly galling for Cantlay, who had just watched Spieth find the bunker.) Then Spieth stuck his 56-foot second shot within seven inches of the hole, and that was that. I was disappointed only in that I was hoping they’d duke it out for five or six holes.
Hey, Red Sox, get with the program. I’m talking about the vax program. I don’t want to hear it.
The first weekend of This Iteration of the USFL found its reasonable and realistic niche. The football wasn’t bad, the athletes played hard and there seemed to be some genuine esprit on the rosters. And that Saturday night 28-24 Birmingham win over New Jersey was compelling. I’m good. I’ll have another, please…
Have I mentioned that Alabama OT Evan Neal is the best football player available in the upcoming NFL Draft? I did? Well, I just did again.
